How About The Bus Replacement Service? …or Train Replacement Service as it should probably be called… good luck with that.

@FGW I don't pay for a bus service, I pay for a train service. I realise 'service' might be alien to you in your bottom line, but sort itout

So @FGW have seen fit to replace my train with a bus. Next time I shall see fit to pay in monopoly money. #unamused

@paulpottsmusic @FGW and for 1st class passengers whats the incentive to travel 1st class? Its all the same on the bus!

@FGW please will you make the 16.52 Bristol Parkway to Portsmouth wait – rail replacement bus driver has got completely lost. Unacceptable.

@FGW stuck on one of your rail replacement buses it has no air con the heating is on and it's 20 degrees outside how is this a good service?

@FGW how do I go about complaining? Replacement bus was 20 minutes late leaving me stranded at Reading for 3 hours. Thanks.

@FGW thank you for putting buses on to Exeter but surely it should be at a lesser price due to being a rail service we're paying for?

.@iglooant @FGW just be grateful you're not waiting for one of their busses… pic.twitter.com/ZdguWjB6xE

@FGWTweetManager @FGW @FGWproblems Even your replacement service doesn't turn up. Might want to take the signs down pic.twitter.com/6tQJmN7l1T

@FGW no room on your bus replacement from Thatcham. Can only take 8. Seriously?! #outrageous

.@faceofboe If @FGW use replacement buses, they should be compelled to charge bus fares not train fares

@FGW Replacement bus service late yesterday and today I'm paying ridiculous prices for a cancelled train. Please sort it out FGW

@fgw RE: Newbury-Reading bus services. How can you justify full train fare for a service that takes over twice as long to get to RDG/NBY?
— Doboworth (@Doboworth) November 3, 2013
.@fgw All joking aside, why are they the same? You can't expect me to believe an hourly bus service costs you the same as trains?
— Doboworth (@Doboworth) November 3, 2013
An excellent point! Why is that, FGW?
@FGW and the queues get longer and the people more frustrated. Loud hailers? PA system? Emergency plan? pic.twitter.com/tOhSRpJ9Kj

“@christt: Incredible First Great Western train service includes a 50 minute wait for a bus at Swindon. God I wish I'd hired a car.” @FGW

£184.80 for a week of rail replacement, first great western you really are #cunts
— Tom Stephens (@tstep92) February 18, 2013
Dear @FGW, rail replacement coaches + insufficient (if any) air con do not make for pleasant journeys. #SweatBox #Stuffy

Nothing I like more than playing hunt-the-rail-replacement-bus at midnight on a Saturday. Thanks, @FGW, same time next week?

@FGW I very rarely travel with you but when I do there are Always bus replacement services. Your rails must be very shiny!
— PLSE HELP/NOTE THX (@GoodServicePlse) October 6, 2013
@fgw oh, and apparently the "replacement bus" hasn't even been booked….I hate you
— simon burch (@simonrburch) October 30, 2013
@FGW yes actually, I am a student and had to pay for a taxi from marlow to maidenhead, as you did not send enough replacements…
— Sophie Foote (@_sophiemaria) October 2, 2013
Pay for a train end up on a bus… Surely there should be some sort of reimbursement policy. @FGW
— Lilygreen & Maguire (@lilygandmaguire) October 5, 2013
Sat on a @FGW rail replacement & just got off the Severn bridge drivers struggling without a working windscreen wiper…

@FGW service at Newport S.Wales was awful, 3 buses waiting to go to Bristol, drivers refused and watched us get soaked in the downpour
— Claudia Emery (@ClaudieClaw) October 27, 2013
@FGW @fgwkmc the wye at bath for the replacement buses that aren't there 👏👏 pic.twitter.com/08x7RjKt1p

@nationalrailenq @Se_Railway the 9.16 rail replacement bus service from dorking deepdene doesn't exist!!! Not impressed…
— Matt K (@mjk05) November 24, 2013
Once again the @FGW train ran 7min late, so I miss THEIR OWN replacement bus. Absolute joke.
— Jeevan Rai (@jeevanrai) November 5, 2013
@FGW bless you for the extra 2 hours to my journey. Wasn't like I had plans so the tour of stations in a stinky, badly driven bus was great.
— Tory Powell (@Tharps) December 6, 2013
Bit of an insult that @FGW still charge full train prices for a rail replacement bus that takes twice as long as the train.

@fgw where's the buses? pic.twitter.com/wgD1UbXAHE

@fgw can you ask your replacement bus drivers to drive less like they are in grand theft auto? My back hurts now #compensation?
— Hannah Molesworth (@Hannahmomi) February 27, 2014
@FGW where are my rail replacement buses at slough? May as well have them running perpetually due to the daily shambles #hopeless
